The explosion of racial violence in Charlotte, N.C. has led to a gun buying spree by locals worried about their safety.

At Hyatt Guns, one of the nation’s largest, staff arrived Thursday morning after the second night of riots and encountered a line of buyers.

“First off, our prayers are with law enforcement this morning. People are afraid. They see lunacy in the streets being perpetrated by criminals and they are gearing up to protect themselves,” Justin Anderson, director of marketing for Hyatt Guns told Secrets. “Sales last night were brisk. Most of the purchases were self defense shotguns and 12 gauge buckshot,” he said.

“We had people waiting at the door this morning who are looking at similar guns. People that were on the fence about buying a gun prior to last night are now making that purchase,” added Anderson.

The store is not far from the downtown violence, but has regular security and is so popular among local police that it recently set up an online store for police.

    Deterioration is the new normal.

    Been that way for sometime. It will only get worse.

    damn i whish i had bought more stock in weapons manufacturers!

  4. Number TWO says:

    … and after a while, after everything settles down, all these loaded guns will be sitting dormant in the back of a closet somewhere, ready to blow the head off some unsuspecting kid. Because, as Hillary and all the lunatic-left know, guns kill people since guns are living breathing entities that have no other purpose. And people are nothing but mindless innocent slugs who just happen to own the damned things.

    Never mind any sort of concept or any sort of LAW regarding RESPONSIBILITY! Never mind the U.S. Constitution!!! Right?

    Now, take a good look at all those protesters. I’d be willing to bet that the vast majority are uneducated/under educated liberal democrats with about half either totally dependent or partially dependent on some form of public welfare. And with everyone calling everyone else a (n-word), what would you expect? Scholars? World leaders? Nobel Prize recipients?!

    Therefore, it would seem that black lives really DON’T matter — not even to the COPS!

    I wonder if Obama and Black Lives Matter owns stock in Ruger, Remington, and Smith & Wesson.

    That would explain a lot.

  6. I have no sympathy for anyone caught without a standard rifle and case of ammunition when the 19 Trillion dollar U.S. National Debt correction occurs.

    Fortunately, natural selection will prevent their lack of foresight and laziness from contaminating future generations.

    While DU was never a tech blog…….it also never used to be an Alt-Right Looney Bin.

    Times change.

    • McCullough says:

      Unfortunately, when we do post about tech, there is almost zero interest.

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        Well… the Elon Musk pimping is about tech.

        From memory, my favorite topic re Anthropomorphic Global Warming got lots of responses…. maybe your own personal choice there?

        I recommend you post whatever you want to…but it ain’t EVER going to get a good tech response if you NEVER post a tech issue??

        Solution: post as you wish but add the tech articles. The total number of posts provide by DU has declined to near zero. Years ago, it was 3-4-5 per day.

        Ha, ha……..what do I expect for nothing from volunteer staff?………. Exactly.

        Again: post what YOU are interested in. I assume thats what you do anyway.

      Alt-Right Looney Bin to observe that gun sales are booming?
      So now liberals are scared not just of Trump, not just of guns, but of sales reports?

      • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

        Its not the OP—its the brain dead responses to it.

        • NewFormatSux says:

          Well it’s clear to everyone you were lying and trying to walk balk what you wrote.

          • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

            NoFuckingSense: No. Just as I said.

    It is very entertaining…
    That for ALL the cameras, Police are wearing..
    NONE WORK when we need to look at them..

  9. Hmeyers says:

    I think the NBA, NFL and NCAA ought to disallow Charlotte from hosting superbowls or championship games because of safety concerns raised by the event.

    • NewFormatSux says:

      That’s already happened.

    • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist says:

      They should have the screws put to them by having all Federal funding and matching programs removed.

      We need to stop rewarding stupidity and anti-social/human gubment inspired jihads.

  10. I am very sad to hear that news.
